Halle Berry and James Marsden Reportedly Also Eyed for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'
It seems that "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will become a reunion project for director Bryan Singer and his original "X-Men" cast members. After nabbing Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen to return as Professor X and Magneto respectively, it is now said that the project will likely see the return of Halle Berry and James Marsden as Storm and Cyclops respectively.
It is MovieWeb which shares the words that Berry and Marsden are also being sought to come back to the mutant heroes film franchise. The two starred in the first three "X-Men" films along with Hugh Jackman, who's recently also asked to reprise his iconic role as Logan a.k.a Wolverine.
It's still unclear whether or not 20th Century Fox has formally offered Berry and Marsden to join the project. Yet it is also still unknown whether the studio will approach other original stars like Anna Paquin who played Rogue, but words are, there are a lot of "willingness to participate" since Singer is returning to helm the upcoming project.
According to MovieWeb, the original "X-Men" stars will appear in scnes that include a dystopic, alternate future in the sequel to "X-Men: First Class". It is said that Kitty Pryde will play an important role in the action. The character herself was portrayed by Sumela Kay in "X-Men", Katie Stuart in "X2" and Ellen Page in "X-Men: The Last Stand". It's still unknown whether any of the those actresses will reprise the role or not.
Skedded for a July 18, 2014 release in the U.S., "Days of Future Past" will be based on Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142 back in 1981 during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's run. The story introduced the idea of an alternate future for the Marvel mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are all set to return as Professor X, Magneto, Mystique and Beast respectively.
